Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II

        Internationally known as one of the most prestigious luxury watch-making brands in the world, Rolex emerged over one century ago, in 1905, Switzerland, and it was the master creation of two visionary entrepreneurs, Alfred David and Hans Wilsdorf.

        A brand that continually raises the quality standards and watch-making mastery, Rolex is famous for creating timepieces defined by immaculate precision and classy distinguished elegance, and the new exceptional Oyster Perpetual Rolex Explorer II embodies the brand’s life-guiding principles and philosophy; it combines Rolex’s iconic elegance with slightly sportier design touches that enhance the timepiece’s modern seductiveness.

        Nevertheless, in spite of its masculine powerful elegance, the timepiece was designed to face extreme conditions. Based on the initial Oyster Perpetual Rolex Explorer II model, first introduced in 1953, the year of the first ascent of the Mount Everest, the new watch meets the highest standards of resistance.

        The watch features the emblematic Oyster case, manufactured from the sturdy Rolex 904L steel, which was designed to withstand in the most challenging environments whether on the peak of the highest mountain or 100 meters beneath the ocean’s surface. In spite of its outstanding resistance, the timepiece also impresses through the exceptional polished, high-end finish characteristic to the Oyster line.

        The timepiece features a minimalist dial, fitted with four hands- a 12-hours hand indicates the time on the dial and, an additional 24-hours hand used in conjunction with the Arabic numerals hour markers on the bezel, this hand can be set independently from the 12-hours hand enabling the timepiece to display time in two different time zones. Instead of numeral markers, the timepiece features geometric hour indices (triangles, circles, or rectangles) that have received luminescent coating for optimal time-legibility in poor light conditions, as well as the hour hands of the timepiece.

        At the heart of the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Explorer II, beats an in-house, high-precision self-winding Oyster movement -Caliber 3185 that guarantees the highest level of long-term endurance, reliability and precision, therefore conferring an outstanding level of performance certified by COSC, along with a power-reserve of up to 72 hours, depending on the model.

        A timepiece especially designed for an adventurous gentleman of the 21st century, highly appreciative of stylish looks and mechanical excellence, the bold Oyster Perpetual Rolex Explorer II comes coupled with a masculine bracelet, and it is available for an approximate price tag of $5,750.00.
